Princeton NJ -- The Office of Community and State Affairs serves as ''a bridge between town and gown,'' according to Pam Hersh, its director. ''My team works with state, county and municipal government officials, plus with a wide variety of community organizations, to enhance the quality of life throughout the region.''

The office gets involved in issues such as donations to municipalities, land use, affordable housing, transportation, environment, science, technology and higher education policy, and economic development.

Staff members also oversee the Community Auditing Program (see story in this issue), the Program in Continuing Education, the Community Use of University Facilities Program and the Surplus Equipment Donations Program, as well as numerous arts and entertainment initiatives for the community, such as Community Day at Princeton Stadium (see story in this issue) and the Communiversity spring festival.

For more about the University’s contributions to the community, see “By the numbers” in this issue.

For more information about the Office of Community and State Affairs, call 258-3204 or visit 22 Chambers St., Suite 101. Pick up a copy of the “Community Ties” brochure for detailed information on town/gown relations; the brochure is also available on the office's Web site at: <web.princeton.edu/sites/pucsa>.
